Verdict

Mungo Park won a maiden on the Flat for Mark Johnston last year and was also second over 2m in a Kempton handicap. Most of John Ferguson's runners have come on for the outing so far this autumn, however, and he'll have to be a decent recruit to get the better of WEEKEND MILLIONAIR. David Pipe's gelding may not have got home over 2m6f on heavy ground at Wincanton in May but had finished second over this trip in a handicap at Punchestown after winning at Ffos Las and that form is far superior to that of his rivals. Dance Tempo, the other previous winner in the race, was beaten at Uttoxeter after winning a little race at Worcester while Aurorian and Twoways haven't shown much so far. Native Colony was a stayer on the Flat and could go well if overcoming a lack of experience.
